Get the most from your medication
Current medications are extremely effective, yet their interactions with other medications can be complex and it is important to take and store them correctly.
It is important to maximise the benefits of your treatment and that is the aim of a comprehensive medication review.
A medication review will look at all aspects of your current treatments and provide you with knowledge to ensure the maximum benefit from them. We then write a report back to your GP before a final recommendation is made.
This service is fully funded if you meet the criteria:
- take more than five medicines a day
- have spent recent time in hospital
- confusion around medication
- concerns around medications
- inconsistent taking of medication
